None of those are compatible.  You have a fairly old amd chipset motherboard

alright, which is the cheapest motherboard that is compatible with one of them, and which one.

To be honest, none of them.  They are all so old, you'll be lucky to find one.  The xeon's were lga771 and server chips, so there'll have hardly been a mainstream board for them anyway.  The i3 was socket 1156 which you may find one 2nd hand on ebay pretty cheaply.

 

I had the i3 530 at the time, and they were decent little chips, however this was 2010 so dont expect miracles

alright, what cpu that will fit, and is good for fsx can you suggest that is compatible with this motherboard? (I am so sad, since the good cpu's don't fit, and the motherboards are costly)

I recommend (as will other's I'm sure) to start from scratch, those CPU's are super old.

Unfortunately, Sizziano is correct.

 

Socket 939 has been pretty much defunct since 2010/11

Tell us how much is your budget for CPU and MOBO, that way we could give you a better answer.

Hi guys, I have just found out the best CPU, and a cheap motherboard: CPU: Amazon.com: Intel G3258 4 Pentium 3.20 GHz 3M Cache 2 Core Processor (BX80646G3258): Computers & Accessories and I can overclock it to 4.2 Ghz, as everyone says it's easy, and FSX will LOVE that! And the motherboard I want is: Amazon.com: MSI Intel H81 LGA 1150 DDR3 USB 3.1 Micro ATX Motherboard (H81M-P33): Computers & Accessories. Isn't it so CHEAP? Thanks guys sooooo much for your effort, and that solves my problem!  :dance:  :smile:  :wink:  :P  :Party:

Thats a good choice.  You also should be able to overclock the cpu to 4.2ghz without any problems

 

(I had exactly the same setup as a 2nd system)
